How long are your services?
Each Sunday worship service lasts about an hour. Certain festival services may go a little longer.
Where should I park?
There is a municipal lot to the northeast of the church building. It is free and open on Sundays. During the week or whenever the parking barrier is closed, simply bring your ticket inside the church to stamp it and your parking is free. Parking is also available at the Richard school parking lot on the weekends and when school is not in session.
What should I wear for worship?
At Saint James, we have people who wear jeans and people who wear a jacket and tie. Please come dressed as you are comfortable.
Is there a wheelchair-accessible entrance to the church?
Yes, the entrance from the municipal lot is wheelchair-accessible, and there is an elevator just inside that door. Press “S” on the elevator panel to go to the Sanctuary level.
What educational opportunities are there for children in church?
Sunday School for children 4 years old through 8th grade is held the first and second Sunday of each month. New students are welcome at any time of the year. Catechism Classes begin when a student begins to show maturity for life in the church. This usually takes place in the sixth or seventh grade.
First communion classes are offered each Lent.
Youth and older children learn about sharing the gospel and serving God and the community through participation in service projects, for example Saturday mornings at Gleaners.
In the summer of 2018, High School Youth will be attending the ELCA National Youth Gathering in Houston, Texas. Contact the Pastor or Church Office for details.
